Live-action take on popular tale is family fun.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that this movie includes a very tame relationship between George and Ursula. There's also some sexual innuendo (Coffee, Tea, or Me, mating rituals of apes, female excitement over George's physique, etc.). The film also includes poop jokes, flatulence, wedgies, and similar potty humor.

what families can talk about

  • How is the ape's treatment similar to the ways in which George istreated?
  • Why does Ursula accept George?
  • Why does Lyle reject him?
  • Families can talk about respect for other cultures and feelings of pride. Why are Ursula's parents hesitant about letting George into San Francisco high society?

The only thing that is worth to watch is young Brendan Fraser because he's hot... the rest is just a complete retard.
